Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D. WA) in support of U.S. Senators Gary Peters (D. MI) and Jeanne Shaheen’s (D. NH) re-election campaigns:
The FEC deadline is tonight at midnight, and with so much on the line for our families in this election, it’s so important that we stand with our Democratic Senators all over the country.
To win a Senate majority in 2020, we must ensure our Democratic champions like Gary Peters and Jeanne Shaheen have the resources they need to beat the GOP efforts to unseat them.
Gary Peters is one of two Senators up for reelection in a state President Trump won in 2016. That means the GOP has their eyes on Michigan and will do whatever it takes to defeat Gary and flip his seat. We can't turn the Senate blue without Gary, so we need to start now to make sure we send him back to the Senate to be the strong voice families in Michigan need.
In New Hampshire, which is famous for being a swing state, experts predict that Jeanne Shaheen’s race will be one of the tightest elections in the country. Right-wing groups are already spending more to defeat Jeanne than they are against all other in-cycle Democratic Senators combined. We must fight back to ensure that she is reelected in 2020.
